One of the easiest umbellifers...

... due to the lovely long bracteoles hanging down below the flowers, and that single red flower in the centre!

Btw, if you have more pics of umbellifers, it really helps to also show the foliage, and the underside of the umbel (flower head) as the bracts and bracteoles are significant for ID.

But not on this species!
